Race on Governors Island 9/6
OK, this is completely late notice, and for that I apologize. I was bemoaning earlier today about the lack of any weekend races in the immediate area. I was also on Governors Island (not running, but enjoying a beautiful late summer afternoon and recovering from a 2-hour run earlier in the day).
Sometimes, coincidences collide. Check out the 5K race tomorrow on ... Governors Island. It's a 5K race that takes into account the 2.2 mile loop. Very flat, and could be some nice times. The World Trade Center Run to Remember is "a celebration of the lives of those lost on September 11, 2001."
Race day ferry information is here. Worth checking out if you're able.
For those of you who are wanting to check out Governors Island anyway, a free ferry is available from Brooklyn on weekends (I should warn you, the first ones, around 11 a.m., are packed, so get there a little early.)
